Our government is broken, let's work even less!!

To be serious, this story illustrates a great point. The new five-day week for Bangladeshi civil servants will apparently cut costs amid a looming economic crisis. Some private companies are refusing to follow the public sector example, saying they cannot afford it.

This stark contrast in attitudes reflects their respective productivity metrics.

Isn't this, therefore, the government's confession that it's a dead-weight cost on Bangladesh's already basket case economy?
